White House Says Sanctions Will Include Russia’s Defense Industry
The United States will impose further sanctions on Russia on Monday over the crisis in Ukraine and they will include high-tech exports to Russia’s defense industry, a White House official said on Sunday. White House deputy national security adviser Tony Blinken said the sanctions are designed to punish Russia for not living up to an agreement to de-escalate the situation in eastern Ukraine, where armed pro-Russian separatists have taken control of about a dozen government buildings. The White House had previously said cronies of Russian President Vladimir Putin and the companies they control would be targeted with sanctions.
